Mountain Biking Boschendal

  Add a review
#34 of 79 mountain bike trails in South Africa
#11,797 in the world

Black Route = 16km and 600 odd m of climbing. However my Strava measured from Boschendal Wine Farm parking lot 25.5km and 740m of climbing. From the parking lot to the start of the trail is probably 2km one way.

Majority jeep track on the climbs, 3 main climbs between and 3 main single track descents.
Descents are definitely worth the climbs, flowy and scenic with a couple of features thrown in.
Personally I wouldn't ride in summer as almost the whole trail is out in the open (only the first descent is under tree cover).
there are two or 3 stream crossing where you can fill up your water bottles and cool down a little.
All in all, worth the ride... and the Burgers at the restaurant after is a must
